The beauty around us

I've been seeing, for four days, the visit of the Pope.
As a deeply catholic person, I was in Heaven.
Most things I saw in television but in the first day I went to Lisbon, to Terreiro do Paço, to the Mass said by the Pope. We were happy. It was the most profound hapiness. We saw the Pope near us in a distance of around 1.5m. when he was going out.
So, today, after four days of pure joy, after he went away back to Rome, with my soul like burning brass, I went to listen some music to calm down.
It was then that I heard this sublime music that has absolutly nothing to do with the Pope but it's just so beautiful.
You don't need to understand the lyrics.
Just listen the beauty.

She is a very known brasilian singer and he is one of the biggest portuguese singers, poets, composers. My uncle is so lucky to know him quite well and I like him so much since my teen years.
He's a very handsome man, perfect lips and nose, a perfect arab, like the people in Alentejo are - arabs, I mean.
Ah, the beauty around us.

Mother's Day


Yesterday was Mother's Day.

As you can see, I had a lot of presents.
The first one was from girl nº 3.
The drawaing was from my little girl. She says it's me and her in the picture.

Also the magnet, key ring and flower with her picture - those made at her school - was given by the little one.

My big girl gave me a box of AfterEight because she knows I like everything minty

and girl nº 2 gave me that beautiful rose.
